Cera Style Studio Wins Accolade for Design
Cera Style Studio Trivandrum has been awarded the most innovative Interior Design by the Time 2 Leap for Sustainable Awards. The interiors were designed by Illusions Architectural Designers headed by Manoj Kumar. M, an architect alumnus from the National Institute of Technology, Calicut.
Inspired by the exposed brick facades of the historic buildings in the capital city of Kerala, Trivandrum and by the rustic feel of old industrial buildings – Cera Style Studio, Trivandrum has been designed around these hues in a modern industrial style using an interplay of exposed brick, cement textures, metal, and wood.
An open plan juxtaposed only by the display wares which form the embellishment of that space is the design theme followed and it is this simplicity in form and the purity of material that has clinched the award for this design.
“The focus has been on maximum product-oriented display by use of the neutral textured background to highlight the white glossy products being displayed,” says Manojkumar, “The studio entry has a large space with a floating white wooden ceiling and metal mesh faced reception table topped using a rustic tree trunk.” The materials used in the space are minimal and sustainable.
“Senator and Isvea areas have been designed with display panels in different hues of cement, textured flooring and floating metal ceiling while Cera display is in wood finish base with floating ceiling above,” explains the architect.
